Spider-Man to humour audiences

February 6th, 2012 by bash Comments

Latino Review have gotten hold of the latest issue of Comic-Con Annual Magazine which has an interesting interview with The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb.

In it, Webb says that the new movie was not a remake of the Sam Raimi films and that it would cover “new territory”, introduce a “new villian” and play up to Spider-Man’s humour.

“We wanted that humour to come from a real place,” he said. “My aim was to create a world where you could feel all those emotions. There are certainly darker, more intense feelings in this movie. There is betrayal, there is tragedy, but there’s also humour and romance… There are moments of furiousness and gravity, absolutely.

“But are there moments of humour and levity and whimsy? Absolutely. Certainly the materials that have come out have a darker sentiment or there’s a darker projection, but we’re very keen on staying loyal to the humor of Spider-Man.”

The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field, and hits cinema screens in July in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
